Stage 1
Bourg-St-Pierre - Col du Grand-St-Bernard

on the map
From the heart of the last village in Switzerland when ascending the St. Bernard valley, we take the old road leading to the Barrage des Toules (Dam). Just above the Alpage de La Lettaz (mountain dairy farm), we follow the lake and star tour ascent towards the Alpage de La Pierre mountain dairy farm. The climb becomes steeper and links up with the Combe de Drône followed by the Col des Chevaux. An excellent traverse leads us to the Grand Saint Bernard Hospice at 2472m.
